Ralphie Report: Podcast: Buffaloes Basketball Post-Mortem

NCAA Basketball: Pac-12 Conference Tournament Quarterfinals - UCLA vs Colorado

Plus, we celebrate the CU women making the Sweet Sixteen.

On the latest episode of the At the Buzzer podcast — a part of the Total Ralphie Radio (TRR) feed now on Fans First Sports Network (FFSN) instead of SB Nation — Jack and Sam break down the 2022-23 Colorado Buffaloes season. We go over the highs and lows of the season, the players who surprised this year, and what we expect moving into next year, especially with the transfer portal. (Please note that the Lawson Lovering transfer portal dropped right as we wrapping up and we didn’t want to do over the episode. We will talk about that next pod.)

After that, we talk about the CU women’s team reaching their first Sweet Sixteen in 20 years. This team is so much fun and they have a real shot at beating 2nd-seeded Iowa on Saturday if they can continue playing their grit-n-grind style. Finally, Jack mentions some CU spring football stuff that I can’t summarize because I wasn’t paying attention but he seems excited so it’s probably fun stuff.

Ralphie Report: Lawson Lovering enters NCAA Transfer Portal

NCAA Basketball: Utah at Colorado

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

This is a loss, especially on defense

Just after the best game of his career in the NIT loss to Utah Valley on Sunday night, sophomore center Lawson Lovering has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal, announced Tuesday evening.

The 7-foot-1 defenseman has averaged 4.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while starting all 34 games he appeared in this season. He averaged just 10.7 minutes per game as a freshman, and upped that to 23 in his sophomore campaign.

Lovering faced extensive backlash from CU fans due to his lack of offensive production. Despite the offensive struggle, he has proven to be an elite defensive center who was often overlooked.

The loss could be devastating for head coach Tad Boyle and the Buffs. With the loss of Lovering’s reliable defense and large stature, Boyle will have to look to the portal to find another center to take over.

Ralphie Report: Colorado finds its 2024 quarterback

NCAA Basketball: Oregon State at Colorado

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Sean Lewis and the Buffaloes get their guy.

It’s hard to recruit a quarterback when the coach’s son is playing there. The Colorado Buffaloes know this better than anyone. Cody Hawkins wasn’t a bad player, by any means, and we don’t expect Shedeur Sanders to be a bad player either. But every QB out there sees the coach’s son behind center and has questions. However, in 2024, CU still needs a quarterback of the future, and Sean Lewis found a prototypical Sean Lewis quarterback.

Danny O’Neil, a quarterback from Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, committed to Lewis and the Buffs over numerous other options, including a notable Jeff Brohm offer at both Purdue and Louisville. The 6’ signal caller has been to a few camps as well, and has received some nice scouting notes.

O’Neil projects to be a perfect fit in Sean Lewis’ system. He has wheels, but likes to pass first, and he has incredible command of the offense. His tape shows total comfort in the pocket and on the run, and the biggest thing I noticed about his throws is the accuracy. The guy can pinpoint passes. In a system like Lewis’, the QB needs to make a LOT of decisions. O’Neil is going to make more good than bad.

First off I would like to thank my parents for their endless love and support. You guys have given me every opportunity I could have asked for without ever questioning a thing. I want to thank my Cathedral coaches and the Morelli family for supporting me and pushing me to become… pic.twitter.com/DWwAA4Dq9Z
